The President studies and assesses the "grants and scholarship" application file and on the basis of the demonstrated extraordinary qualifications or circumstances of the applicant, decides whether the applicant meets the criteria for being granted the award or not. If applicant is eligible for the award, the President determines the nature and height of the award.

The Presidential decision is final and is not subject to any further appeal or grievance procedure.
